#9 of 60 in Wildlife in Tasmania
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
Meet Australia’s iconic devils at Tasmanian Devil Unzoo, an innovative wildlife park set up to protect this endangered creature and educate the public about the importance of environmental conservation. The park’s main attraction is the devil, but you can also see other native animals, such as quolls and pademelons. Special presentations about the efforts to save Australia’s endangered animals are held in conjunction with daily feedings, during which visitors can approach the park’s friendly kangaroos and birds. You can also go on leisurely nature walks through the park’s botanic garden, which abounds with diverse plant and animal life. Don’t forget to stop by the gift shop, where every ticket and souvenir sold makes a little difference in the vital efforts to save the devils.

  • This place was great! Devils roaming around, Kangaroo feeding (you get to do it) and get to see a Devil feasting on some meat. Birds and other creatures are around too. Overall it's fun and peaceful with all the greenery. Good price too, don't know what the other reviewer was on about! Definitely visit this place if you're on the way to Port Arthur (it's 10-15 minutes apart) - just be sure to coordinate your visit for the feeding times. Enjoy
  • Really enjoyed our time at the Unzoo. This is a great place to see the Devils and meet a few other critters. The informational presentations are worth listening to.
  • Amazing. We loved the Unzoo - we were very pressed for time and it was our last opportunity to see the Devils. We arrived just in time for the afternoon feeding. We stood watching long after the main crowds had moved on. Their commitment to preserving these animals very commendable.
  • It's a good place to learn more about the Devils and the gift shop has some great books n souvenirs.
  • We went here as part of a daylong tour to Port Arthur. The Devils feeding and presentation, as well as the bird feeding, were all we had time for in the hour we were at the 'unzoo'. They were both presented by a knowledgeable and interesting young lady who obviously loves her job. Watching the Devils struggle with each other over their food was fascinating. Plan to make a donation when we get back home.
